    About this property

    Gubbio Villa, Sleeps 35 With Pool

    Villa in Gubbio with private pool and patio
    A medieval castle in Umbria, the green heart of ItalyThis magnificent castle was built in the middle ages, in defence of the town of Gubbio against Perugia. The castle has retained its defensive caracter from the outside, but four years of intensive renovation have turned the interior into an extremely welcoming and comfortable house for 14 to 35 guests. The owners of the estate are descendants of the family of Napoleon Bonaparte and the castle has been in their family since 1830. The castle is surrounded by a park whith century old trees, large lawns and a beautiful pool which looks out over the hilly 1400-acre estate. The estate is signposted with beautiful walks and in the appropriate season you can even go truffle hunting with local experts. The accommodation is split across two buildings - the main castle, which sleeps 14, and the guest house, which stands to the side of the castle and connects to the castle via a corridor, which sleeps another 16. Five additional beds can be added bringing the maximum capacity up to 35 people. The most exciting rooms are of course up in the watchtower! The ground-floor kitchen is modern and functional, a professional stainless steel kitchen. It opens up onto the courtyard and the back of the castle, both equipped for outdoor meals. The rent includes a daily maid service and the preparation of breakfast. The local village can be reached in 5 minutes by car. Gems such as Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Spoleto and Todi are all within easy reach. The estate lies within a broad bend of the river Chiascio near the medieval city of Gubbio in Umbria. This region is justifiably described as the "green heart of Italy." The estate spreads over 1400 acres (600 hectares) of meadows and woods, offering a variety of paths for hikes, horse riding and - most exciting - the search of white and black truffles with specifically trained dogs (we can organise this for you). Signposted paths completed by instructions given by the owner will open up this nature reserve to you, where you will be able to see deer, roe, porcupines, wild boar and pheasants. However, Umbrias cultural and gastronomic abundance is not far. Landmarks such as Gubbio, Gualdo Tadino, Nocera Umbra, Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Spoleto and Todi can be visited in half or full day trips. Amidst a beautiful untouched countryside stands the castle. First mentioned in the early middle ages (1200 AC) playing a strategic role in the defence of Gubbio against Perugia, in the 15th century it became one of the favourite hunting lodges of Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino and Gubbio. His famous profile portrait by Piero della Francesca hangs in the Uffizi Museum in Florence. A few centuries later, in 1830 to be precise, Princess Giulia Bonaparte, niece of Napoleon, became the new mistress of the castle. The actual owners of the estate are her direct descendants.

The main monuments and sightseeings of the city include the Roman Theatre which is still in use for performances, the massive Palazzo dei Consoli, the duomo and the Palazzo Ducale. Gubbio is best known for its palio, the Corsa dei Ceri, a spectacular run held every year on May 15, in which three teams run through throngs of cheering supporters up much of the mountain from the main square in front of the Palazzo dei Consoli to the basilica of S. Ubaldo, each team carrying a statue of their saint. In Orvieto, visit the fanciful Gothic Duomo, which soars seven stories high. Inside are magnificently vibrant and graphic frescoes of the Apocalypse by Luca Signorelli. Don't miss the Pozzo di S. Patrizio, a historic well built by architect-engineer Antonio da Sangallo the Younger of Florence, between 1527 and 1537. In Assisi, you'll want to visit the famous basilica dedicated to Italy's patron saint, Francis. Frescoes by Giotto vividly tell the story of St. Francis's life. In the Piazza del Comune you'll find a church inserted into the remains of the ancient Temple of Minerva. Above town stands the Rocca Maggiore, a fortress that protected citizens during attacks. For a dose of nature and spiritual contemplation, walk to the hermitage, the Eremo dell Carceri. In Spoleto, visit the Roman theater and the archeological museum for a view of ancient Umbria. Go see the pre-Renaissance frescoes by Fra Lippo Lippi and Pinturicchio. The church of San Salvatore is one of Italy's oldest and is set within the remains of an ancient Roman temple. In Deruta, stroll the color-splashed streets where Italy's most famous hand-made ceramics are produced. Visit charming Citta di Castello, which packs a lot into such a small town, with palaces, churches, towers, and -of course- a castle, all sitting pretty and begging to be explored. In Todi you'll find all the main sights conveniently concentrated onto the Gothic Piazza del Popolo, which is itself set over top of an ancient Roman cistern system. Below town is the striking Renaissance church of Santa Maria della Consolazione. In Perugia, be sure to see the frescoes by local artist Pietro Perugino in the Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria and in the town hall's Sala del Cambio. Step back to ancient times at the Etruscan arch and Etruscan well. Enjoy the lively atmosphere at the large fountain, the Fontana Maggiore. Sample the chocolates named for the city. Perugia plays host to international visitors with its acclaimed annual Umbria Jazz Festival, held each July. A wildly popular chocolate festival every October pays homage to the city's sweet side. Spoleto offers up culture, dramatic performances and musical concerts during the Festival dei Due Mondi. Gubbio's Roman theatre is a dramatic setting for summertime, open-air performances. Sports: The castle lies within a large estate which is the natural habitat of fallow deers, pheasants, wild boars and many other kind of animals. It is possible to take a guided tour of the estate with the owner or the estate manager, by car or on foot. Trekking: The estate has a large number of signposted treks of all different levels. Beautiful experience. The estate lies on the river Chiascio which is excellent for fishing. Bring your own rod or hire one nearby. Truffle hunting: In certain months of the year, you can follow the truffle hunters with their specially traines dogs. Dig in! The Natural Park of Monte Cucco is a protected area not far from the castle, covering a land surface of 10,480 hectares (24 thousand acres). The park is famous for its subterranean rivers and mineral-water springs, for its clear streams, great beech-woods and its limestone cave system, untouched by mass tourism. Trekking on signposted routes, mountain biking, pony-trekking, and for the more adventurous, canyoning, paragliding and hang-gliding (international championships are held here). Complete information on their website http://www.discovermontecucco.it Grotta di Monte Cucco: The grottoes have more than 30 kilometres of caves reaching a depth of more than 900 meters. This is one of the most important underground systems in Europe. Up until recently the caves could only be entered by expert potholers. Since a couple of years however, there is an 800 metre long underground route open to anyone open to this adventure. The experience ranges from the sound of water (someone called it a silence full of sound), which slowly erodes the rock to the sight of stalactites and stalagmites, caves, labyrinths and tunnels. Not for children under 10. For more information visit: https://www.grottamontecucco.umbria.it/home-en Special price during Easter and Christmas for groups up to 10 people: EUR 4500 per week.
